CALL FOR PAPERS: Workshop on Abstractionism / Neologicism, 26-27 Apr 2014, Storrs CT (U.S.A.),


The UConn Logic Group is proud to announce the first of its annual 
workshops. The workshops are organized around a researcher whose work has 
had a significant and lasting influence on a field of logic, broadly 
construed. The remaining talks, invited and selected, will be given by 
critics as well as contributors to the field who were influenced by the 
keynote speaker's work.

April 26-27, 2014, University of Connecticut, Storrs

Abstractionism / Neologicism

The first workshop in the series will focus on Abstractionism / 
Neologicism. Abstractionism pursues Frege's goal of finding a logical 
foundation for arithmetic by replacing his famously inconsistent Basic Law 
V with different resources: so-called abstraction principles, understood 
as implicit definitions. Since the 1983 publication of Crispin Wright's 
Frege's Conception of Numbers as Objects, there has been a wave of 
literature developing and criticizing this program that still has not 
subsided. The 2014 UConn Logic Workshop will pursue current work on this 
project.

Confirmed Speakers:

Keynote:
Crispin Wright (N.I.P. Aberdeen, NYU)

Invited Speakers:
Francesca Boccuni (Milan)  [to be confirmed]
Roy T. Cook (Minnesota)
Richard Heck (Brown)
ystein Linnebo (Oslo, N.I.P. Aberdeen)
Friederike Moltmann (IHPST Paris, NYU)
Sean Walsh (UC Irvine)

In addition, there will be a limited number of contributed talks, with at least one slot reserved for a graduate student presentation. 
The winner of the graduate student competition will receive free accommodation and a travel subsidy.

If you would like to contribute a talk, please send your paper to marcus.rossberg@uconn.edu.
Please note in your email if you would like to be considered for the graduate student competition.

Talks should not exceed 45 minutes, leaving 30 minutes for discussion.

Deadline for submissions:  February 16th, 2014

Submissions will be selected by the end of February.
